FE Hoops



For the past eight years, we have hosted sessions in October and early November that focus on training and techniques designed to assist the player to stand out in their upcoming tryouts.

There are several important parts to this very successful program.

1- Provide a great instructor who is directly involved with selecting teams as a high school coach. Thomas Paul is one of the top coaches in the Nassau Suffolk Catholic League where he has been part of the staff that has won multiple league championships at Chaminade. Each year, he is part of the staff that must select from dozens of players who are seeking a limited number of spots. This is never an easy task from either the coach’s role or the prospective players. This is an excellent opportunity to understand what the coach is looking for from one of the most experienced and respected coaches in New York State.

2- Provide a program with excellent results. Our answer to this is our proven record. Last year over 90% of our middle school players were selected for their school teams and high school had a majority of the program participants become part of their teams. There is no doubt that participation in this program will enhance your chances of making the team.

3- Coach Paul is one of the lead trainers at Crown Basketball which has quickly become the most respected training program on Long Island. Coach Paul is an organized trained educator and knows what it takes to be successful. He is a “specialist”.

4- Provide a location that caters to those on the North Shore of Long Island. Our answer for the past seven years has been to hold this type of training for those who are the furthest from Island Garden. We recognize that it is not always convenient to come to Island Garden especially during the evenings in the Fall when everyone is starting a new school year. We have an excellent facility at Chabad in Port Washington where we have been able to host these training sessions. All are welcome to participate no matter where you live but we do hope that our followers from Great Neck through Syosset will find this location to be more convenient.
